Question about strange setting
, 09:54 PM
I am considering buying this yellow gold and amethyst ring from an antique jewelry store. I think it's very pretty, but the setting seemed strange and maybe even cheap to me. Rather than prongs, the stone is held down by four somewhat wide, flat strips of gold that seem to be "glued" over each side of the stone. Has anyone seen something like this? If so, is it normal, good or bad?
I have a picture of it on my phone, but I'm afraid it's too blurry to help much.

Thank you! I'll keep looking.
